Without incident response and forensics capabilities, you will never understand what’s really going on ... It’s only through incident response that you will get the necessary technical indicators and understand the kill chain. This information can then be fed to your threat intelligence structure.

The biggest problem awaiting us in the near future is the emergence of cyber terrorists, who are not interested in financial attacks. They want to attack critical infrastructure. And they are using the exact same tools that organized crime has used.

The global pandemic that locked people worldwide inside their houses and made their devices the only link to the outside world became a golden opportunity for cybercriminals. They saw their victims increase time spent online while at the same time get rid of control of corporate cybersecurity solutions and experts.

Dmitry Volkov

CTO, Head of Threat Intelligence & Attribution Department, Сo-founder of Group-IB

Since co-founding Group-IB in 2003, he has been a prominent voice leading the company toward becoming the go-to expert on international cybercrime. His team successfully conducted the first cyber investigations. They have identified and helped detain cyber criminals who targeted public and private companies worldwide.

In 2017 Dmitry became Chief Technology Officer at Group-IB. In his new role, Dmitry is responsible for all aspects of the company’s technological development and transformation.

In 2016, he became a member of the Europol EC3 Advisory Group on Internet Security.

In 2015, Dmitry was listed by Business Insider as one of the top 7 professionals behind influential security companies.

In 2013, Dmitry Volkov became a member of the UN Open-ended Intergovernmental Expert Group aimed at conducting a comprehensive study on the problem of global cybercrime.

Instead, an organization’s cybersecurity should be based on a proactive approach. All the threats targeting an organization are detected at the preparation stage. Modern cybersecurity solutions should not only carry out dynamic and static analysis of potentially malicious files, but also counteract a number of techniques that threat actors use to detect the threat analysis environment and bypass threat detection technologies.

Security Brief
There are millions of indicators like hashes, IPs, certificates. They are the dots, they themselves do not bring you much value, while connecting those dots and attributing them to a specific threat actor is paramount. It gives you a bigger picture and understanding of the depth of the attacks and adversaries’ further intent, based on historical data. Since the very beginning, we have been observing different threat actors and how they bring down some of the highly robust IT infrastructures, which has enabled us to progressively learn, develop an excellent understanding of their behaviour, tools, techniques and practices and formulate security prerequisites needed for resilient and effective cyber defence.

...the MoneyTaker group broke into 20 systems, which includes 15 U.S. lenders, targeting ATMs with “mules” and Russia`s interbank monet-transfer system, Group-IB said in a report provided to Bloomberg. Criminals have changed tactics and are now focusing on banks rather than their clients, as was standard operating procedure in the past.
